Hazel’s faith was always at the center of her life. She willingly and joyfully served her family, friends, and church community; no one left her house hungry or without roses from her garden. Hazel was an avid quilt-maker. She was loyal, nurturing, and strong-willed; a powerful example of what it looks like to use your talents for the greater good.
